Sie können daran persönlich teilnehmen oder Ihre Gebote schriftlich einreichen Durch die Abgabe eines Gebotes erkennen Sie die nachstehenden V e r s t e i g e r u n g s b e d i n g u n g e n an:

Schätzwert, und gewöhnlich werden Lose zu 60% des Schätzwertes ausgerufen, wenn kein anderes Gebot (Limit) vorliegt. 8. Die Bieter haften persönlich für die Bezahlung ihrer erfolgreichen Gebote; hierin eingeschlossen sind die Bieter, die Gebote von anderen Parteien auf Provisionsbasis abgeben, und die Bieter, die j u r i s t i s c h e P e r s o n e n oder a n d e r e R e c h t s t r ä g e r v e r t r e t e n . Käufer, die für Gebote von anderen Parteien Provisionen erhalten, geben die Gebote auf ihr eigenes Risiko ab, und sie sind CNG g e g e n ü b e r f ü r die v o l l e B e g l e i c h u n g g e m ä ß diesen Auktionsbedingungen v e r a n t w o r t l i c h .

1. Die aufgeführten Lose werden von CNG auf eigene Rechnung, als Vertreter verschiedener Besitzer und Einlieferer versteigert. CNG behält sich das Recht Gebote zurückzuweisen, den Rufpreis zu bestimmen, die Steigerungsstufen festzulegen, die Reihenfolge der Lose zu verändern, bei Unklarheiten das Los neu aufzurufen, Lose von der Versteigerung zurückzuziehen, im Namen von CNG und der E i n l i e f e r e r zu bieten, sowie den E i n l i e f e r e r auf seine eigenen Lose bieten zu lassen.

9. In dem Fall, daß ein erfolgreicher Bieter Zahlungstermine vers ä u m t , b e h ä l t sich CNG das Recht vor, die W a r e n e r n e u t zu verkaufen; der Bieter erklärt sich damit einverstanden, alle anfallenden Kosten eines solchen Verkaufs zu zahlen und auch für den F e h l b e t r a g z w i s c h e n dem W i e d e r v e r k a u f s p r e i s und dem Preis des vormals erfolgreichen Gebotes aufzukommen. CNG behält sich auch alle Rechte vor, die sich f ü r CNG aus dem Handelsgesetzbuch für Pennsylvanien, dem Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial Code, ergeben; hierin eingeschlossen ist das Recht, j e d w e d e nach e r f o l g t e m Zuschlag fällig gewordenen Beträge, gegen beliebige künftige Einlieferungen, Ankäufe, Gelder oder Güter, die sich im Besitz von CNG befinden, aufzurechnen.

2. Auf alle Lose wird ein Aufgeld von 1 0 % auf den Zuschlagspreis erhoben. 3. Die Echtheit aller Münzen wird garantiert. Alle Beschreibungen geben die persönliche Beurteilung des Verfassers wieder, es wird insoweit keine Gewähr geleistet. Bitte beachten Sie, daß eine Auktion Käufe zur Ansicht ausschließt. Lose, die vor dem Verkauf besichtigt wurden, und Lose, die von bei der Versteigerung anwesenden Bietern (einschließlich Bietern, die Gebote im Namen anderer Parteien auf Provisionsbasis abgeben) gekauft wurden, können aus keinem Grund zurückgegeben werden, ausgenommen bei mangelnder Echtheit. Alle R e k l a m a t i o n e n , a u s g e n o m m e n Ansprüche in Bezug auf mangelnde Echtheit, müssen innerhalb von fünf Tagen nach dem Erhalt der Ware vorgebracht werden. Ansprüche auf Grund mangelnder Echtheit müssen von dem ursprünglichen Käufer in schriftlicher Form sofort nach Kenntis, g e s t e l l t w e r d e n ; und bei der G e l t e n d m a c h u n g e i n e s solchen A n s p r u c h s muß der u r s p r ü n g l i c h e K ä u f e r die Ware s o f o r t in dem gleichen Zustand an CNG z u r ü c k g e b e n , in dem sich die Ware zum Zeitpunkt der Auktion befand. Schätzwerte sind nur als Richtlinien gedacht und stellen keine verbindlich Erklärung über den Wert dar.

10. U m s a t z s t e u e r , Porto, T r a n s p o r t k o s t e n und V e r s i c h e r u n g fallen in den V e r a n t w o r t u n g s b e r e i c h des K ä u f e r s und werden allen R e c h n u n g e n , f a l l s z u t r e f f e n d , h i n z u g e r e c h n e t . Porto, Transportkosten und Versicherung für Bücher werden getrennt von denen für Münzen in Rechnung gestellt. Der Käufer erklärt sich bereit, angefallene und nicht entrichtete Steuern auch dann, wenn sie von CNG nicht in R e c h n u n g g e s t e l l t wurden auf Verlangen zusammen mit aufgelaufenen Zinsen, sowie eventuell auferlegte Strafen zu bezahlen. Es fällt in den Verantwortungsbereich des Käufers, die Zollbestimmungen und andere Regeln im Ausland zu erfüllen 11. Die e r z i e l t e n P r e i s e werden nach dem V e r k a u f bekanntgegeben und w e r d e n zusammen mit d e r nächsten Veröffentlichung von CNG versandt.

4. Die Bezahlung wird sofort nach Erhalt der Rechnung fällig. Auf Rechnungen, die nicht innerhalb von 30 Tagen nach dem Verkaufstag beglichen werden, werden vom Datum der Auktion an Z i n s e n und I n k a s s o g e b ü h r e n in Höhe von 2% pro Monat berechnet Die Zahlung muß mit Scheck erfolgen, entweder mit einem auf US-Dollar (US-$) ausgestellten Scheck, der auf eine US-Bank gezogen ist, oder mit einem auf Pfund Sterling (£) ausgestellten Scheck, der auf eine britische Bank gezogen ist. Allen erf o l g r e i c h e n B i e t e r n a u ß e r h a l b von N o r d a m e r i k a und Großbritannien wird zusätzlich ein Betrag in Höhe von US-$15,für Bankgebühren in Rechnung gestellt; die Käufer können jedoch diese Gebühr von ihrer Zahlung a b z i e h e n , wenn sie die Bezahlung auf die oben geforderte Weise vornehmen. Zahlungen können mit Visa, Mastercard oder American Express erfolgen; jedoch wird bei Bezahlung mit Kreditkarte ein Aufschlag in Höhe von 3,5% berechnet.

12. Die Bieter verzchten, auf alle sich an dieser Auktion ergebenden Ansprüche hinsichtlich Schadenersatz für A u f w e n d u n g e n , S c h a d e n e r s a t z f ü r F o l g e s c h ä d e n oder e i n e r über den verursachten Schaden hinausgehenden E n t s c h ä d i g u n g . Das einzige Recht, das einem T e i l n e h m e r an der Auktion auf Grund eines auf die A u k t i o n z u r ü c k g e h e n d e n A n s p r u c h e s o d e r e i n e r entsprechenden S t r e i t f r a g e zusteht, besteht in einer zinslosen R ü c k v e r g ü t u n g des g a n z e n o d e r e i n e s T e i l s des g e z a h l t e n Kaufpreises. 13. Alle Rechte, die Bietern oder Käufern von CNG gewährt werden oder ihnen a n d e r w e i t i g zur V e r f ü g u n g s t e h e n , und zwar gemäß diesen Auktionsbedingungen oder anderweitig, sind persönlicher Art und können nicht an eine andere Person oder einen Rechtsträger abgetreten oder übertragen werden, sei es durch gesetzlichen Rechtsübergang oder anderweitig. Keine dritte Partei kann sich auf Leistungen oder Rechte berufen, die durch diese Auktionsbedingungen gegeben werden. Bieter, die als Vertreter h a n d e l n , müssen d i e s e V e r t r e t u n g CNG vor der A u k t i o n in schriftlicher Form o f f e n l e g e n ; andernfalls sind die Rechte auf den V e r t r e t e r b e s c h r ä n k t und sind nicht auf den nicht offengelegten A u f t r a g g e b e r übertragbar.

5. Bieter, die CNG nicht bekannt sind, müssen CNG eine zufriedenstellende Kreditreferenz zur Verfügung stellen oder ein Depot hinterlegen, dessen Höhe von CNG festgelegt wird, ehe sie Gebote abgeben k ö n n e n . M i n d e r j ä h r i g e d ü r f e n ohne die s c h r i f t l i c h e Zustimmung eines Elternteils, der die Zahlung garantiert, nicht bieten. CNG kann von jedem Käufer Vorauskasse verlangen. Die versteigerten Lose bleiben bis zur vollständigen Bezahlung aller Forderungen von CNG Eigentum der Verkäufer. Nach Erhalt der Lose übernehmen die Käufer die volle Verantwortung für Verluste oder Schäden.

14. Ein Rechtsstreit hi nsichtlich dieser Auktion unterliegt des Gesetzen von Pennsylvanien und kann nur von dem Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas oder dem U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania gerichtlich entschieden werden; und alle Bieter unterwerfen sich für diesen Zweck auf Grund einer Zustellung durch eingeschriebene Post den Staatshoheitsrechten dieser Gerichte. In einem Rechtsstreit hinsichtlich dieser Auktion ist die obsiegende Partei berechtigt, ihre a n g e m e s s e n e n Kosten und R e c h t s a n w a l t s k o s t e n e r s t a t t e t zu bekommen.

6. Die Schätzungen sind in US-Dollar (US-$) und alle Gebote müssen auf gerade D o l l a r b e t r ä g e ( U S - $ ) l a u t e n . CNG f ü h r t schriftliche Gebote im Namen der Bieter aus. Vorbehaltlich der Mindestgebote und Rufpreise werden schriftliche Gebote eine Steigerungsstufe (von etwa 10%) über dem nächsthöchsten Gebot während der Versteigerung zugeschlagen. Gebote unterhalb des Schätzwertes werden in der Regel nicht ermäßigt. Gebote über dem Schätzwert werden jedoch ermäßigt sofern dies möglich ist. Bei gleichhohen Geboten wird der Zuschlag dem zuerst abgegebenen Gebot erteilt. Ein schriftliches Gebot hat Vorrang vor einem, das während der Versteigerung abgegeben wird. Das Bieten erfolgt nach Losnummern. Die Lose werden nicht aufgeteilt. Die Bieter sind für Fehler beim Bieten selbst verantwortlich. Überprüfen Sie Ihren Gebotsbogen gründlich.

Les acquéreurs se chargeant d'offres/enchères à la commission venant d'autres personnes le font à leurs propres risques et restent responsables vis-à-vis de CNG du règlement intégral selon les présentes Conditions de Vente aux Enchères. 9. Au cas où un acquéreur omet d'effectuer un paiement lorsque celui-ci est échu, CNG se réserve le droit de revendre le lot et l'acquéreur accepte de payer les frais raisonnables d'une telle vente et aussi de payer la différence entre le prix de la nouvelle vente et celui de l'enchère précédemment acceptée.

Tous les droits accordés par CNG ou dont les enchérisseurs et a c q u é r e u r s peuvent a u t r e m e n t se p r é v a l o i r leur sont personnels et ne peuvent pas être cédés ni t r a n s f é r é s à une autre personne physique ou morale, que ce soit du fait de l'intervention de la loi ou autrement.

CNG peut exiger le règlement intégral de la part d'un enchérisseur avant la livraison des lots. La propriété des lots ne se trouve transférée qu'une fois que les lots ont été payés intégralement. A la réception des lots, l'acquéreur assume l'entière responsabilité en cas de perte ou d ' e n d o m m a g e m e n t de ceux-ci.

CNG exécutera les offres/enchères soumises par correspondance pour le compte des enchérisseurs. A part dans le cas d'une reserve, les o f f r e s par correspondance seront exécutées à approximativement 10% de plus que l'enchère la plus proche. Veuillez noter que les enchères inférieures aux valeurs estimatives sont rarement réduites mais que celles au-dessus de ces valeurs ont de fortes chances d'être réduites. En cas d'offres identiques, la première l'emporte. Une o f f r e par c o r r e s p o n d a n c e l'emporte sur une offre identique dans la salle. Faites vos offres en écrivant le numéro du lot. Les lots ne seront pas divisés. Les enchérisseurs assumeront la responsabilité des erreurs sur leur bulletin d'enchère, c'est pourquoi il est recommandé de tout contrôler avec soin.

($1000) Metellus, the father-in-law ofPompey, took an active role in the Senate's attempt to strip Caesar of his Gaul command. Wien the Pompeian partyfled Romefor the east in 49 BC, Metellus was given command of theforces in Syria. He exacted funds from the cities ofAsia Minor with brutal efficiency. He had set up his headquarters in Pergamon and was proceeding to loot the treasury when, early in 48BC,he was ordered to link up with Pompey in Greece to meet Caesar's invasion. Attempts to coordinate the variousforces in the Republican armyfell apart in the face of quarrels among the commanders (frequently involving Metellus) over the division ofspoils of a war not yet won. After the defeat at Pharsalia, Metellus fled to Africa where he once again plundered the countryside in search ofsupplies. It was only with great difficulty that Cato prevented himfrom sacking Utica, the main town held by Pompeian forces. He committed suicide by jumping into the sea after losing a naval battle off Hippo Regius in46BC. Metellus is described as cruel, avaricious and vindictive, and in neither Asia nor in Africa did his conduct reflect well on the Republican cause. His depredations in Asia and Africa are marked by this rare issue of tetradrachmsfrom Pergamon and a series of denarii struck in Africa.

The chronology of the Himyarite rulers of south Arabia remains clouded by uncertainty. There is still no conclusive evidence whether the names Amdan Bayyin Yanaf and Amdan Bayyin that appear on the most common series ofsilver coins refer to one person or two. Thefollowing selection ofvarietiesfrom a small hoard show that there is a clear progression between the two series, with a transitional type between the two. We cannot, however even be sure the progression goesfromflatcoins to cupped (scyphate), although that is the traditional sequence. Aforth-coming book by Stuart Munro-Hay, capsulized in NumChron 1994, "Coins of Ancient South Arabia", pp.191-203 will present new evidencefor this enigmatic series.

($125) The Y above the obverse head may simply reiterate the phrase or name Yanaf.

796. ARABIA, Himyarites. Amdan Bayyin. Circa 50-150 AD. AR Quinarius (1.14 gm). Raidan mint. Male headrightwithin dotted tore; animal head at lower end of tore, monogram HDR behind / Small headright;,MDN BYNI- RYDN, symbol toright.SNG ANS—; BMC Arabia—; Munro-Hay 278. EF. ($125)

Ex Frederick S. Knobloch Collection (Stack's, 10-11 June 1970), lot 485.

This unusual piece appears to be a transitional issue between the Amdan Bayyin Yanafand Amdan Bayyin types. The types generally match Amdan Bayyin but the tore head more closely resembles an animal head as seen on the Yanafcoins, and the reverse human head is noticeably larger than the second series. In addition, while this coin is slightly more scyphate that the Yanaf coins, it does not compare to the deep cup of the Amdan Bayyin type.

Shapur, son of Ardashir, established the limits of the new Sasanian kingdom, bringing most of the lands between Syria and India under his control. In the east, the ancient kingdoms of Baktria came under Persian domination, and the Kushanshahs became vassals of the "King of kings of Iran and non-Iran". It was in the west, however, that Shapur achieved the victories that ensured his unique place in history. Shapur defeated not one, but two Roman 880. Shapur 1.241-272 AD. AR Drachm (4.17 gm). V I / I M I emperors, first Philip I in 244 AD and then Valerian I in 260. Philip was Gobi 1/1; MACW 811ff. Good VF. ($100) forced to withdraw from the field and pay a 500,000 aurei indemnity, but Valerian became the only Roman emperor to be captured in battle by a foreign foe. The unfortunate emperor was forced to act as footstool for Shapur, and after his death his body was stuffed and set out on display at the Persian court. One of the direct consequences of these successive victories was the accumulation of vast stores of tribute by Shapur. For the first time since the Achaemenids, a Persian king struck gold coins in quantity, and silver coinage expanded prodigiously also. Many of Shapur's drachms appear to be struck over Roman antoniniani, and the appearance of numerous field marks on obverse and reverse attests to the rapid production of coinage from Roman booty, probably by new mints and workshops set up specifically for that purpose. 881. Shapur 1.241-272 AD. AR Drachm (4.32 gm). V I / I 111 I Gobll/l; MACW 811ff. Good VF. ($100) The following drachms were selected from a large grouping of drachms of Shapur specifically to illustrate the multitude of officina(?) marks to be found on this series. Gobi notes fourteen different reverse field marks, but there are obviously many more to be found. The types for these coins are generally standardized, with a crowned bust of Shapur facing left on the obverse, and a fire altar of Ahura-Mazda on the reverse flanked by two royal attendants. The royal headgear, distinct for each subsequent Sasanian ruler, in this case is comprised of a crenellated crown with ear flaps and a diadem with ends fluttering out behind it. The hair is tied up in a silk cap called in Greek a "korymbos", decorated with stars and other designs. Occasionally a secondary diadem istiedaround the korymbos. The legend in Pahlevi is "Worshipper 882. Shapur 1.241-272 AD. AR Drachm (4.32 gm). V I / I 111:1 of Ahura-Mazda, Shapur, King of Kings of Iran, divine descendant of gods", Gobi 1/1; MACW 811ff. Good VF. ($100) and on the reverse, "TTiefireof Shapur". On the following coins of Shapur, a short hand notation will be used to denote the design elements and the placement of field marks around them: Obverse: I =crowned bust of king; \ =primary diadem ends; ' = secondary diadem ends (if present). Reverse: I I I I = fire altar flanked by two attendants. Besides the dots and crescents that comprise the field marks, two other common symbols that appear in this series are the tamgha, or tribal brand seen on Shapur 1.241-272 AD. AR Drachm (4.40 gm). \ I / many types of central Asian coinage, and an open diadem. These symbols can 883. m/1; MACW 811ff. Good VF. appear on or above the fire altar on the reverse.

Group, Inc.

A West Coast Collection of Ancient Egyptian Coinage From Ptolemaic to Byzantine times with a special emphasis on the Coinage of Roman Egypt We are proud to offer the following collection of ancient Egyptian coinage, assembled over the last 40 plus years by a west coast collector. The collection begins with Alexander the Great's tetradrachm issues from the Memphis mint and ends with some of the last Byzantine issues from the Alexandria mint, but the core of this collection is the coinage of Roman Egypt, from Augustus to Diocletian.

1052. Alexander III. 336-323 BC. AR Tetradrachm (16.88 gm). Memphis mint. Circa 332-323 BC. Head of Herakles, wearing lion skin / Zeus seated left; rose to left, ΔΙ Ο below. Price 3971; Müller 124; SNG Copenhagen 7. Good VF, graffiti and porosity. ($400)

Included in the collection are many bronze drachms with rare and interesting reverse types which depict the unique synthesis of Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures that make the so-called 'Alexandrian‫ ׳‬series popular with collectors and scholars. Offerings of this scope and quality are rare today, and it should gamer much interest. For the convenience of our customers, we are following this important collection with the balance of the Roman Egyptian coinage consigned to this sale, primarily from two European collections. We encourage collectors to study the following lots carefully as they contain many rarities that are seldom, if ever, offered on today's marketplace.

The reverse type on this piece has been traditionally attributed as the Uraeus - the serpent which the pharaoh wore on a diadem or crown. The Uraeus was aflame-spitting serpent which averted all evil and was defined as thefiery eye of the sun god, Ra (or Re). The consignor of this coin suggests another, more likely, attribution - that of Isis-Thermouthis, a'corn'or grain goddess. He bases this attribution on theheaddress of Isis which is not a normalfeature of the Uraeus. There is a rare type issued by Domitian, also on an oboi, depicting Isis-Thermouthis with the head of Isis on the body ofa serpent. Both of these types were issued during the same period, and it is possible that they were meant to depict the goddess in two ofher different guises, a common occurrence in Egyptian art.

The traditional description of the reverse type of this extremely rare coin is "Herakles and the Pygmies", probablyfirstpopularized by R.

Another possible interpretation would be Herakles in his role as the patron deity ofthe gymnasium. The smallfigureswould then be ephebes and the reasonfor their diminutive depiction would be that the engrcwer simply wan ted to emphasize Herakles as their protector and patron deity.

Thefirsteight years of Hadrian's coinage in Alexandria features a rather crude portrait of Hadrian and then, starting with his regnal year 9 in Egypt, the style of his portait starts to improve greatly. Andbyyear 10 the Alexandrian portraiture of Hadrian starts torivaleven that of the Roman die engravers. It is possible that Hadrian himself noted the poor quality of workmanshipfrom the Alexandrian min t during the early part of his reign, and that either directly or indirectly he was responsiblefor the improved handiwork of the celators.

($400) Bellinger accepts the pedimented shrine as the symbol of the Edessa mint. However, the style of the portrait and the treatment of the eagle in no way resembles the tetradrachms of that mint. There is a resemblance to the coins of Rhesaena (cf. pl.XIII, 11), and infacta close examination of the reverse reveals that the pedimented shrine mintmarkof Edessa has been engraved over the plain square shrine(?) of Rhesaena. Edessa acquired a pair of dies intendedfor Rhesaena and re-cut the symbolfor its own use. 1 47

On the reverse, the trophies refer to the battles of Chaeronea in 86 BC and ofOrchomenos in 85 BC.

French royal coinage was struck at a number of mints across the country. In 138 Charles VI established a system of "points secret", or unnoticeable marks on each to identify the issuing mint. This move apparently formalized a system that had been operatingfor some time previously. Beginning with thefirst gros tournois ofL IX each subsequent issue is marked off with a complex system of subsidiary symbols - dots, annulets, trefoils, wedges and the like placed in thefieldsof the coins. 2545. Charles the Bald. 843-877. AR Denier (1.66 gm). Toulouse mint. The exact meaning put to these symbols is not clear, nor the exact number ofdiffere +CARLVS REX F, cross / +TOLSA CIVI, Karolvs monogram. M&G 1096. VF. symbols, but they must have been used to keep very careful control of die produc ($150) tion and distribution. Under Philip TV, where Duplessy lists eight different types, Mey in Le Gros Tournois et ses Imitations, list 111 varieties. It is likely this system ofdie marking was necessitated by the great popularity the gros established at timeivhen the traditional denier wasfalling in value. The gms was copied at many c ters of commerce, and was the prototypefor the English groat struck by Edward I in 1279. The royal government would want to be able to distinguish the originalsfro the copies without giving away the secret. The small selection offered below includ several unlisted varieties. 2546.

($1500) The extraordinarilyrare gold dinars of Ghazna are the only gold coins struck in the name of Genghis Khan with the mint name and date indicated.

The introduction of the Long Cross Sterlings or penniesfollowed shortly after the reformation of the English penny by Edward I, or around 1280. Uniform coinage was struck at the mints of Aberdeen, Berwick, Edinburgh, Perth and Roxburgh, with the number of points to the stars or mullets on the reverse indicating the mint. Unfortunately, the precise mint identification for each variety has been lost to us. Stuart and North have provided a new sequence oftypes, based on the changes in bus type and lettering. Thefollowing coins are listed in their sequence of types. Thecriteriafor identifying each type are listed in great detail in their British Numismatic Journal paper. Lot 2997 2 7 1
